im a second degree BSN nurse who passed the Nclex and ready to start a new career! However im feeling terrified and anxious over actually practicing nursing. Nursing school was not easy for me and im worried
Yes I think it's normal, I just passed my NCLEX too, congratulations on your recent accomplishment. I am an L.P.N. now have B.S.N. I have been in LTC since 1995 so it is all I know. Don't get me wrong I know a lot, but not acute care, I am a chronic care guru, lol. Nursing is so demanding and nursing school was brutal, I don't think they prepare people for the reality. I am more prepared than most which is why I think it is so scary going into hospital care. You will be fine I am sure of it. I hope you love it as much as I do. Good luck!!
